Oceanic movies in actual science museums are far more interesting and nuanced than this documentary -- not to mention the wildly popular Planet Earth series, which even in 2-D looks better.

Under the Sea 3D is one of the best of the genre. If it doesn't serve oysters, per se, this submarine wonder offers marvels in abundance.

The IMAX format is ideal for the subject matter and, like its predecessors, this documentary proves to be a hybrid of entertainment and education, revealing rarely-seen natural splendors while sounding alarm bells about the environment.

While some of the content may go over younger viewers' heads, it introduces them to complex issues while entertaining them with footage of playful sea lions and slithering snakes that appear to swim right toward your face.

Strictly fodder for the preteen set, Under the Sea 3D, the latest IMAX deep-sea-dive exploration (brought to you by the fisheye's point of view), is expectedly rudimentary but a splendor to watch.

I've seen so many large- format deep-sea documentaries I'm waterlogged, so I was reluctant to go to Under the Sea 3-D. But I'm glad I did.

The visuals are intimate and startling, comparable only to viewing a fantastic aquarium, and the aquarium is sitting in your lap.

It's impossible not to be wowed by some of the images in Under the Sea 3D, 
the coolest of which are a nice 
reminder that, even in the age of CG wizardry, the best special effects still come straight from Mother Nature.

If you have children who might be diverted by 40 minutes of natural wonders, and you can get to an Imax cinema, then Under the Sea 3D is a treat.

This is the fourth Imax underwater excursion, and the second in 3-D, and it may just be the best yet.

Even about halfway in, even having settled into your seat with those plastic glasses nestled on your nose, you'll still find yourself dazzled again and again by the impossibly breathtaking beauty of the IMAX adventure Under the Sea 3D.

It's that kind of detail that makes a the film such an immersive experience. An educational one, too.

In addition to the incredible visuals (marred once or twice by a clunky editing decision), the sound picks up the movement of water from a cuttlefish fin and the sound of fish eating off the ocean floor.

Runtime is a brisk, never boring 40 minutes and [Howard] Hall and company dish up a visual feast that is as close to being there than, well, being there.
